Hope this is new, and if this is, others to continue...

So this brings up a question for me. It's Fazer in most of EU (except Finland I guess) and among my IRL friends, but it's Fizzer in here (but I've never heard that elsewhere). Another friend just referred to it as a FuzzySix (say it fast). My dealer insists on the full and proper FZ6SS(C) without nicknames.

What does all this mean, and do I care?

It's all the same thing. It's kind of like the Europeans calling chips crisps and fries chips. It means the same thing, just a different word.

The FZ6SS is the American denotion for it. The "C" is for California models. IN Europe, they also have the FZ6N (naked...lucky bastards).

Okay, so it's a cultural thing. Does the C have some emissions stuff on it? That's usually the California thing. Them and Massassachusets; nuts for regulations.

Yup. 'C' denots that it passes CA emissions.

Okay, so all the models aren't 100% identical. The EU gets reflectors, Californians (and north, for some reason) get better emissions performance. Well, I'm an environmentalist type, so I guess I'm in favor. Wonder what it's doing to power, not that I have any complaints.

They all come with a catalytic converter, so they're already better off than most bikes.

guys, here in the UK, two models.
the FZ6 (which is the naked model) and
the FZ6 Fazer which is the fairred(same as NA bike)

must admit, was given the naked version for day as a loner when my bike was being worked on. maybe because I am not used to the naked one, but honestly prefered my faired version.
